    Default Need help with my keeper please!

    I?m in a keeperleague with 25 roster spots!
    We keep between 18-22 players...so we can choose between 3-7 drops...i would drop just the minimum 3...my other drops are Brown and Henrique...(we have to drop minimum 1 of our Top 8 and 1 of our Top 16)
    So u see our draft isn?t loaded with good players...just rookies


    4 C 4 LW 4 RW 6 D 2 G 5 bench

    Our categories are:

    G A +- PPP SHP GWG SOG PIM HIT BLK

    and i have a problem with my last drop...

    Muzzin-Erik Johnson-Jason Zucker

    The 2 D men are good allrounder with our categories...
    But i could use Zucker because he?s LW/RW

    what do u guys think?
    How important are the d-men with these categories?

    Who would you drop out of those 3?or would you drop more out of those 3?

    I think Dmen are extremely valuable in your league set-up... but when I say that I actually mean "high-end" Dmen are extremely valuable.

    EJ and Muzz are great examples of those mid-tier guys, who give you awesome peripherals while chipping in usable points. Imo though, while that "kind" of player is really important, they're a little easier to find/trade for because they get undervalued due to lower point totals.

    I think you'll have an easier time replacing one of those two guys than you would Zucker. From last year, Edler stands out as a guy that killed it in peripherals (save +/-) who wasn't really "valued" early on in the year. Petry & Nurse are two others off the top of my head.

    So while those guys are a slight downgrade from EJ/Muzz, I think it'll likely be less of a downgrade that you'll face if you drop Zucker.

    Without knowing your IR situation, I'd prefer keeping EJ over Muzz - but that's just preference based on what I think will happen in LA with Dion.

    So Zucker and EJ for me.

    Thanks a lot...i know...Edler was a FA last year...but Nurse and Petry are also taken!
    But i know what you mean...will keep Zucker for sure...but i?m not sure on who to drop from the 2 dmen...
    You really think EJ is the better choice to keep?

    I do - but I can fully understand why others would prefer Muzzin.

    I'm just trying to read the tea leaves - which for me saw Muzzin's deployment on the PP drop hard after Phaneuf arrived. And I guess I expect that to continue.

    EJ for me will still be a 25 ATOI guy, so I just trust his numbers (pro-rated due to injury - which is something you basically have to count on happening).

    I can also see Muzzin's +/- being much better than EJ's - so again, personal preference.

    My guess is that if you put this question out to the Dobber masses you'd get more in favour of Muzzin... so don't put too much stock in my 2c. Just my personal hunch for this year.
